Stevia Strawberry Jam

Add this to some organic plain fat free yogurt ....seriously yummy

1kg (2lb) fresh strawberries, cleaned and sliced
1 1/2 teaspoons stevia powder available @ Yellow Dog Trading Co Bulk food store 

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup water

1/2 an apple sliced in two 

1. Allow the strawberries to simmer in the water in a heavy based saucepan, mashing when soft. (I skip this part I like to have big strawberry Chunks)
2. Dissolve Stevia in the lemon juice and stir into the strawberries. Simmer until thickened, about 30 - 40 minutes.  I add the apple at this part.  Apples have pectin, help the jam get thick.
3. Cool and refrigerate in a covered glass jar.
